Members are the ROI at ECS

ECS empowers researchers at the forefront of discovery

Marm Dixit was a grad student at the 236th ECS Meeting in Atlanta, GA. John Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino had just won the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for developing lithium ion batteries.

“A couple of my friends and I were getting coffee. Stan (Whittingham) was in line in front of us. So for the 15 minutes, till we got our coffee, we discussed batteries with the Nobel laureate. That’s pretty damn awesome and really fascinating,” said Marm who is now Weinberg Distinguished Staff Fellow at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. (more…)

One of The Electrochemical Society’s most important missions is to build a strong community of scientists and engineers working on electrochemical technologies. To help a critical component of our community—early career professionals after their graduate work or coming from non-traditional fields—transition smoothly into careers and ECS membership, the Individual Membership Committee approved the launch of a pilot membership program for Early Career Members. In this program, Early Career Membership is available at only $70, a 46 percent savings over the regular membership rate of $130.

What Inspires You?

One doesn’t have to look back far into history to be inspired by the great minds of electrochemistry and solid state science and technology. There is much to be inspired by in the here and now.

Our research community is grappling with problems that can change the future for the Earth—and discover more about Mars. And pioneers are creating innovative technology applications that touch virtually everyone’s lives—through the electronics we use to the medical devices that keep us alive. Opportunities abound in the theory and practice of our burgeoning field, with new discoveries and applications developed practically every day. (more…)

ECS March Membership Madness

Membership ApplicationsMembership continues to play a very important role in the success of The Electrochemical Society. During the month of March, ECS hosted a spring membership campaign that featured 13 stories about our members.

Membership with ECS is more than the discounts. Membership is access to the latest scientific research, a commitment to the dissemination of research, and an opportunity for you to build your career with an international network of peers.

Shirley Meng, secretary of the Battery Division, says “The Society is over 100 years old. We should think about what we’ll look like 100 years from now.” Research shows that people join membership organizations, like ECS, to have access to a peer network and to advance their careers. ECS continues to encourage members to invite new individuals to get involved in the organization; and, to engage those nonmembers with interests in electrochemistry and solid state science to learn more about ECS and share in the mission to Free the Science.

Membership application totalsThe goal of the drive was to recruit 100 new members to the organization. With the help of current members, we successfully recruited 81 new members and 86 new student members! In addition to the new members and student members, 68 of our members renewed their membership along with 21 student membership renewals.

Overall, ECS recruited 167 new members and 89 members renewed! This is 173% growth over the March 2017 membership applications/renewals.

Thank you to all of the members who helped to recruit new members to the Society and for those members that renewed during the month of March.
